WARNING: this no longer comes as a direct download of the zip, but as an executable downloader which downloads the zip, but in the process you have to decline installation of about four different annoyanceware toolbars and addons. Also the downloader itself is not portable; it leaves folders in AppData.

When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

@Fred, I use Safarp to remove Java updates all the time.

Try "Remove (quiet mode)"; works great.

I generally use Revo ( to make sure files are removed but to get multiple programs off quickly, I use FreeUninstaller (, which has a local and online search, use frequency, website, and other features.

Note about the 2.3 update: definitely takes full advantage of multi-processor systems. I tested it on Win7x64 with an i7 quad core and it got very close to 90% (few programs can do that). Definitely a big speed bonus over time there and good to see those kind of optimizations in freeware.

@ billon: Thanks ... and updated ;)
